Level 1: Cookie Country is the first level in Kirby's Return to Dream Land. Cookie Country is a rather grassy level with trees and vegetations, typical of first levels. The boss for this level is Whispy Woods. There are 13 Energy Spheres in this level, three each in Stages 1, 2, and 3, and four in Stage 4. Completion of the boss battle yields the Lor Starcutter a set of oars. In addition, Magolor will open the various side-rooms of the Lor Starcutter for Kirby to use, such as Challenge Stages.
|Stage||Energy Spheres / Ship Parts||Super Ability||Notes|
|Stage 1||3||Ultra Sword||This stage contains tutorial signs.|
|Stage 4||4||Monster Flame||A HAL Room is hidden in this stage.|
- The backdrop to this area is reminiscent of Fantasy Meadows from Kirby Air Ride.
- Although it is possible to obtain more than enough Energy Spheres to preemptively unlock some of the rooms in the Lor Starcutter before clearing this level, none of these rooms will be available until after the level is cleared.
- There is a moon in the level lobby area, which cannot be entered unlike most moons present in other Kirby levels or games.
